Dear Theo - worth applying?

    Hello again all,
    So, only 2 music jobs up at the minute, but there are also 2 SEN general secondary teacher jobs advertised locally.
    Is it worth me applying for these? I do have a lot of experience of SEN students/low ability/disability but no formal qualifications.
    What do you think?

    The basic rule is:
    If you can draw up an executive summary that shows that you meet their requirements, then you are a suitable candidate for the post.
    If you can't, you aren't! (Or you haven't yet learned how to do an executive summary properly, and need to contact Julia on advice@tes.co.uk to ask about the next seminar.)
    So off you go and have a try at it! As there are generally fewer applicants for SEN posts, you may find that lack of qualifications can be made up for by relevant experience.

    Best wishes
